WOODBURY CREEK MINES !
 
26:59
There are many mines in the Woodbury Creek area just north of Ainsworth and an abandoned power generating station. This group of claims is located near the mouth of Woodbury Creek. Originally staked by the Canadian Pacific Mining & Milling Co. of Minneapolis in 1896, the group consists of the Amazon, Budweiser No. 2, Superior and Wakefield claims. Three tunnels were driven on the Budweiser claim, one on a fault plane, the other two along fissures. On the Amazon claim a 36.5 metre tunnel was driven on a vein dipping 70 degrees to the south. On the Wakefield claim a 43 metre shaft was put down on a vein containing galena and gold. Apparently no further work was done on this property for about 40 years. In 1939 the owner of the Amazon claim is recorded as J.R. Tuikess of Kaslo. By 1941 ownership of this claim had passed to T. E. Levasseur of Nelson. A leasee worked the property that summer, obtaining 286 tonnes of ore from the old workings. The Kaslo Base Metals Co. of Vancouver obtained the Budweiser No. 2, Amazon, Superior and Superior Fraction claims in 1951. They did some exploratory work on the Amazon and Budweiser No. 2 claims. The property was taken over by the Woodbury Mines Co. Ltd. in 1952. A tunnel was begun on the Superior claim just above the highway, the proposal being to drive 366 metres of tunnel in order to intersect several veins at a lower depth. By the end of the following year about 244 metres of the proposed tunnel had been completed. The project was abandoned by this company and no further work was done on it until 1956 when the property was taken over again by Kaslo Base Metals Co. Ltd. The exploratory tunnel was extended by 56 metres. At 276 metres from the portal a new vein was intersected. It contained 7 to 10 centimetres of galena and replacement ore extended into the walls to a width of 0.6 metre. At 302 metres from the portal the downward protection of a fissure vein exposed in Woodbury Creek canyon was intersected. This vein had been followed by old drift workings which extended east and west from the canyon 43 and 1 metres respectively. A raise was driven from the Superior tunnel to the west drift, 4.5 metres vertically above. No further work has been done. Quartz tension veins occur in the Midddle Cambrian Index Formation ('Early Bird Formation') (Lardeau Group). Calcareous mica schist cuts a lamprophyre dyke. Other veins are in a dolomitized area. The veins are short, en echelon down dip. The rake of the ore is to the east 70 degrees as derived from a slope area and bearing of a calcite vug. A garnet mica schist with Meta autunite is present near the portal. In 3 years between 1939 and 1965 a total of 2,987 tonnes of ore were produced. From this 83,388 grams of silver, 93 grams of gold, 274 grams of cadmium, 39,733 kilograms of lead and 54,306 kilograms of zinc were produced.

EMCO Dunka Mine
 
14:19
A look at Erie Mining's Dunka Branch and the trains that served it. The Dunka deposit was located about 12 miles east (as the crow flies) of the main ore body that Erie worked at the plant. To get there a branch was built off the Harbor mainline and routed to the south of Reserve Mining's workings. Trains were generally hauled by 2 units, one of which was usually the "Road King", Erie's only C424. This video is a combination of a bit of my footage and mostly that of longtime Erie/LTVSMCO employee and friend Doug Buell.

CEO Interview: Value in mining companies, Oman and Mozambique offer great potential
 
08:37
The CEO of Savannah Resources, David Archer, joined Zak Mir and Mike Ingram on the Tip TV Finance Show to provide us with an update of the activities and the future developments planned for Savannah Resources, and their opinions on copper. Commodity prices to rise? Archer outlined that it is hard to see optimism in the current commodity environment, but bringing mines online now is a real opportunity with normalisation on the cards and commodity prices to rise. Copper to recover with China Archer commented that he expects an increase in global industrial production, but for now Copper remains a hostage of the China situation, with 40% of global copper production being directed to the country. He continued that he hoped China would continue to grow, along with increased consumption from India and the US. Oman the focus for Savannah Resources He noted that Oman has development potential, with good infrastructure, a history of copper success and an export port very close. Archer believed the low operating costs where Savannah Resources have saved around $10 million and 3 years of drilling, have reduced the time frame to 2 years before the first production of copper is achieved. He also added that both Oman, and their other project in Mozambique, have quality management teams and aim to deliver value in the current market.

Abandoned Mine And Cabins In The Greenwood Mining District
 
13:31
The origins of its name are not entirely clear, but the Greenwood Mining District may have been named after Joseph Greenwood who is known to have been mining at nearby Richmond Hill by 1863. Approximately twenty mines were located in this district situated between St. Louis and Grass Flat. The names of nearby ravines were Cedar Grove, Horn, Star, Sheep, Coarse Gold and Rich Gold. The camp/town of Cedar Grove was located near Slate Creek within the Greenwood Mining District and although more than 70 individuals worked or held interests in the mines, most of them lived elsewhere in boarding houses. They walked to work from the neighboring towns of St. Louis, Grass Flat, Queen City and Port Wine (for more on these towns, visit TheVelvetRocket.com and enter the names of any of the towns in the search box). A few lived in small cabins at the mine sites (and early in the 1900s a number of Chinese families lived in the Greenwood Mining District). Boucher & Company were the first to discover gold early in the spring of 1852 and, not surprisingly, other miners were quick to locate additional claims and settle in the new camp. Mines known to have been in the Greenwood Mining District were as follows: Belle Tunnel Caledonia Clipper Ship Constitution Dreadnaught (Madam Queen) Excelsior Drift (McCrory & Company) Homeward Bound Horn Tailing Claim Jenny Lind Mountaineer Mine O’Riley Pacific Drift Mine Sierra Union Water & Mining Company St. Elmo Placer (Greenwood Mining & Development Co.) Star (Home Star) Tibbs & Blissard (quartz) Tucker & Moore Van Clief Flume

Top 10 FATTEST COUNTRIES in the World

Over the last century or so, our world has become a pretty darn big place. Between 1980 and 2014, the World Health Organization estimates global obesity doubled. In the US alone, more than two thirds of all adults are considered overweight, with one third considered obese (33%). That’s gotta be a world leader, right? Well, believe it or not, America doesn’t even break the top 10 countries on the obesity scale. It sits at 16th, between Egypt and Saudi Arabia. That’s right. There are at least fifteen countries with bigger waistlines than in the US. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 Help us translate our videos: https://www.youtube.com/timedtext_cs_queue?msg=10&tab=0 - Learn more why you might want to help: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6052538 Find more lists at: http://www.toptenz.net Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

St. Elmo Colorado - A True Old West Ghost Town - Abandoned America
 
14:39
See Photos from our St. Elmo Visit Here: http://bit.ly/St-Elmo-CO St. Elmo was first named Forest City but was later changed because of a California town with the same name. The name St. Elmo was chosen by Griffith Evans, one of the founding fathers, who was at the time reading the novel "St. Elmo". At its peak in the 1890s, the town boasted a general store, telegraph office, town hall, Over 5 hotels, a handful of saloons, dancing halls, a newspaper office, and a schoolhouse. The Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad line ran through St. Elmo (Yes, it's the same South Park you are thinking of). There were 150 mines claimed within St. Elmo. The majority of the folks who lived in St. Elmo worked at the Mary Murphy, Teresa C., The Molly or the Pioneer Mines. The Mary Murphy Mine was the biggest and most productive mine in the area. While in operation, the Mary Murphy Mine recovered over $60,000,000 worth of gold. While the other local mines shut down, the Mary Murphy Mine continued to operate until the "gold standard" was implemented. Which collapsed the price of silver overnight. As a result. The Railroad was closed and eventually abandoned in 1922. Even after the world gave up on this town and its mines, people continued to harvest ore. This was done by hand and miners would haul individual mining carts down the mountain. Once the mining industry closed completely, St. Elmo drastically declined. Miners searched elsewhere for gold, rather than silver. The business district in St. Elmo closed down as well. Few people continued to live in the town. Postal service was discontinued in 1952 after the death of St. Elmo's postmaster. The current population is...three. Have more information about St. Elmo? Want to share?

Diavik Diamond Mine This diamond mine, located in Canada’s remote Northwest Territories is actually a pretty recent hole! Work only began on this thing in 2003, and it is one of the world’s preeminent sources of gem diamonds. Since mining operations began, it has produced over 100 million carats of diamonds!! 6. Berkeley Pit Located in Butte, Montana, this copper mine is now filled with heavily acidic water. Opened in 1955, this mine was used to get copper out of the Earth. Ironically it closed on Earth day in 1982. In the 80’s Berkeley Pit was 1700 feet deep and 900 feet wide. Approximately 320 million tons of ore and over 700 million tons of waste rock were mined from the pit. 5. Mir Mine This is a diamond mine, and one of the largest excavations in history. This mine in Russia is the 2nd largest man made hole in the world. Located in outside of Mirny, a small town in Eastern Siberia, this place is 1,722 feet (525 meters) deep, and 3,900 feet (1.25 kilometers) across. 4. IceCube Neutrino Observatory There are many different ways to make holes in the Earth as you know, or will soon learn. But for the University of Wisconsin, they wanted to do a study of the Earth from a different perspective. They decided to go to Antarctica and drill a massive hole into the very ice caps of the Earth to see what's down there. Thus, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory was made. 3. Kimberley Diamond Mine Also known as the Big Hole, the Kimberly diamond mine in South Africa, is home to the world’s largest diamond mine! It is so large it is visible by space and has produced some of the world’s largest diamonds. 2. Bingham County Mine Also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine in Utah, this mine definitely takes the cake. This copper mine has been in use for over a century, and it's still open to this day. It's the biggest copper mine in the world and provides about 25% of the country’s copper needs. 1. Kola Superdeep Borehole Have you ever wondered what's at the center of the Earth? Fact is, no one really knows which is why the Kola Superdeep Borehole is so important. While the Bingham County Mine may be the largest manmade hole in the world, the Kola Superdeep Borehole is the deepest hole in the world!

Protesting Pacific Rim  Mining Poisoning Rivers in El Salvador
 
03:47
On the eve of World Bank/CAFTA hearing June 1, 2010 in DC, protestors call attention to Pacific Rim's suing El Salvador for not permitting mining gold that would poison half of their rivers with cyanide. Pacific Rim Mining Corp sought to open a large gold mine in the basin of El Salvador's largest river. The mine would use enormous amounts of water and tons of cyanide to process the ore. Public concerns about serious health, water and environmental issues arose after the first environmental study came out. Business press reports note that Pacific Rim halted its application for a final operating permit and ceased exploratory drilling in 2008. Meanwhile, in a triumph of democracy after decades of civil war, Salvadoran public concern translated into bipartisan political action. Both the conservative and then left-leaning governments undertook a national review of mining policy. But instead of continuing with the permitting process, Pacific Rim turned to CAFTA. It reincorporated a Cayman Islands subsidiary in Nevada, and used this new U.S. corporate entity to file a CAFTA case in December 2008. Pacific Rim is using CAFTA's controversial "investor -state" dispute resolution mechanism, which gives corporations the right to directly sue sovereign governments over environmental and other public interest policies they feel could undermine anticipated future profits. As a result, a World Bank tribunal is now empowered to decide whether Pacific Rim's expectation of profit trumps the right of the Salvadoran people to clean water, a sound environment and their democratic rights to determine what is in their national interest. video by Joe Friendly

www.mechaplan.com Padcal Padcal mine, which Philex Mining Corp. has been operating since 1958, is the first underground block cave operation in the Far East. It produces copper concentrates containing copper, gold, and silver. A majority of the copper concentrates are shipped to Saganoseki, Japan, for smelting by Pan Pacific Copper Company Limited, a joint venture between Nippon Mining Co. Ltd. and Mitsui Mining and Smelting Co. Ltd. The Padcal mine is under 12 mineral holdings, with an aggregate 95 hectares in Benguet province which are subject to royalty agreements with claim owners. Exploration activities in Padcal and its vicinity were pursued in three areas in 2011: the Sto. Tomas II orebody, which is below 773 meter level (ML), Bumolo, and in Southwest prospects. The Sto. Tomas II orebody is covered by the Mineral Production Sharing Agreement (MPSA) 276-2009-CAR, or Cordillera Administrative Region. The Bumolo and Southwest prospects are within MPSA 156-2000-CAR. Within the Sto. Tomas II orebody, underground diamond drilling was continued at 773 ML which aimed to explore the vertical extension of the orebody. An additional 10 holes were drilled in 2010 for an aggregate meterage of 4,802 meters. This meterage and those in the previous two years resulted in the definition of a significant volume of mineral resource between 600 ML and 782 ML that could potentially extend the mine life of Padcal beyond 2020. In Bumolo prospect, located northeast of the Sto. Tomas II orebody, the target drilling--started in 2010 to investigate the soil geochemical anomaly--was followed by the completion of three additional holes with an aggregate meterage of 1,286 meters. The drill holes intersected intrusive bodies with lower grade mineralization that appears to have diluted an originally good grade deposit delineated earlier near the surface. Good grade mineralization thus appears to be limited near the surface of the prospect. A modest mineral resource tonnage maybe realized from the prospect when the ongoing estimation is completed. The southwest prospect lies less than a kilometer from the Sto. Tomas II orebody. A breccia body, which was identified as a diatreme breccia, was confirmed after the old drill cores were reviewed and relogged in 2011. Gold and copper mineralization was validated after the old drill cores were re-assayed. Limited mapping and sampling was conducted in 2010 due to community issues. Pending the resolution of access to the property, the company decided to drive an underground exploration tunnel at 908 ML leading to the prospect. The tunnel reached 300 meters and a drilling pad was constructed near its face. The first of a number of exploration holes was collared in that pad and reached 148.5 meters depth as of Dec. 31, 2011. Drilling intercepted a breccia body with marginal grade of gold and copper. Two other prospects--Clifton and Bumolo 2--that were lined up for investigation in 2011 did not materialize. The social license for Clifton has been stalled as the communities raised new demands and the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) suspended the Free and Prior Informed Consent (FPIC) pending the issuance of a new guideline. Bumolo 2, located northeast of the Sto. Tomas II orebody, similarly became inaccessible to the exploration team because of overlapping claims among surface owners. Only limited stream sediment sampling in a small area outside of the known target was allowed. www.mechaplan.com

Saving "The Company Town" From the Koch Bros...
 
06:21
For the first part of the 20th century - many residents of central Appalachia lived in "company towns" where coal companies ruled - and state and federal governments simply turned a blind eye. The residents worked for the coal mines - lived in company houses - and were paid in company scrip that was useless outside the town. Amazingly - in the 21st century - there are still towns where a single company employs most of the town and poisons everyone in the surrounding area. For more on the story of Crossett Arkansas - and one man's nearly four year fight to save the town from Koch Industries - I'm joined by Natalie Kottke-Masocco - Co-director of the new film "Company Town" which is premiering tonight at the Los Angeles Film Festival.

Julian - San Diego Attractions - California Ghost Towns
 
02:15
California Travel Expert Veronica Hill of http://www.CaliforniaTravelExpert.com and the California Essential Guide (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id428163062?mt=8) app visits Julian California in this episode of "California Travel Tips." This charming little ghost town — located an hour from San Diego — comes alive during the fall, when it celebrates the famous Julian apple harvest. Bring along a light jacket as you explore the town's quaint stores, restaurants and delicious homemade apple pies. Julian's mining history dates back to 1869, when San Diego experienced its first (and only) Gold Rush. Today, Main Street is filled with dozens of fun shops and attractions. You can hitch a ride on a horse and buggy, do a bit of wine tasting, or get a Western-style portrait taken at Grandpa's Old Time Photo. To learn more about Julian's mining history, join a tour at Eagle and High Peak Mine, located at the end of C Street. Train rides are available on the Smith Ranch and Julian Railroad by appointment. Kids will enjoy panning for gold at the Julian Mining Company, or getting an old-fashioned phosphate at the Miner's Diner soda fountain. But the real draw in Julian is the apple pie, and visitors are fiercely divided on who makes the best. I'm partial to Julian Pie Company, a cozy little diner with a loyal following. Be sure to get here early, as lines quickly form out the door. Once you've had your fill of pie, walk off the calories with a tour of Julian's pioneer cemetery and historic Gold Rush buildings. The Jacoby Building, built in 1897, was the town's original general store. The Wilcox Building, which dates back to 1872, once served as a stage coach stop and Julian's post office. If you want to spend the night, consider staying in the Julian hotels. The Julian Gold Rush Hotel, which was built in 1897, is one of California's best B&Bs, and well worth a visit.

American Flat Mill, Nevada.  (Part I)
 
06:45
UPDATE, The site Was demolished by the state of Nevada in November 2014, For safety reasons and To make way for the big mining business defacing Virginia City, Gold Hill and Silver City . So do not make the trip if you were planning to. Just west of Gold hill Nevada on State Route 341, lies American Flats; and the remains of the Comstock Merger Mines cyanide mill. Time and wind have reduced the mill to strangely beautiful skeletal remains. The crumbling reinforced concrete monoliths (there are eight of them), rise out of the desert like post-apocalyptic temples, whose clandestine devotees leave cryptic messages and painted images as offerings to the silent, long dead gods. Some regard the ruins, complete with falling concrete, unprotected drop-offs, flooded tunnels and subterranean vaults a public hazard; others see it as an important piece of Comstock history. Gold and silver mining began in American Flat after 1860 when the Comstock discoveries extended beyond the Gold Canyon ravine. By 1864 American City had become a town and its citizens tried to secure the territorial capital from Carson City. Promoters at American City offered $50,000 to the Nevada territorial government if it would relocate there. The Storey County papers backed the removal attempt, but the legislators rejected the offer. During 1864-66 American City was a thriving town with two large hotels amid other businesses, a post office and its own township officers. But the community never took root and by late 1867 American City was all but gone. In 1920, the United Comstock Mining Co. constructed a $1.5 million four-story cyanide mill of reinforced concrete on the site to process low-grade ores coming out of the Comstock Lode. Three years later the Comstock Merger Mines Inc. was formed to operate a group of Comstock mines in the middle of the lode and in 1923 acquired the mill when the United Comstock Mining Co. went out of business. A small company camp just below the mill included a store, houses, a post office and other buildings until December 1926, when the Merger Mines Company closed the mill because of the falling price of silver. The building at American Flats has been the subject of much debate this past year. In December 2010, the Nevada Appeal reported that the BLM was moving forward with plans to demolish and reclaim the site; causing an outcry among those that would see the old buildings preserved. At present, the demolition is on hold until further studies to determine the sites' historic value can be conducted. The remains at American Flats have been a gathering hole for dirt bikers, graffiti artists, paint ballers and partyers for decades. Although one of the arguments for its destruction is the danger, few injuries or fatalities have been reported in its 89 year history. According to an article in the Reno News and Review, soon after the 1922 operation began, at least one worker, Rodie Sheeke, was killed after an ore train failed to stop when it was supposed to and crushed him against an ore dump. In 1935, firefighter George Harris died while working a fire at American Flat. A quick internet search only produced only one mention of a more recent death; it seems someone tried to drive somewhere not meant for vehicles back in the 1990s. UPDATE: The site Was demolished by the state of Nevada in November 2014, For safety reasons also To make way for the big mining business defacing Virginia City, Gold Hill and Silver City So do not make the trip if you were planning to.

1995 Southern Pacific Steam Locomotive Action Texas Hill Country
 
11:28
Southern Pacific #786 was built by the American Locomotive Company, Brooks Works, Dunkirk, New York in 1916. It was withdrawn from service and donated to the City of Austin, Texas in 1956. It sat idle for 34 years suffering indignant vandalism as is common with park locomotives. In 1989 the #786 was leased to the Austin Steam Train Association (ASTA) and removed from display the following year. The locomotive restoration was started in 1990 at the Westinghouse Motor Co. shops in Georgetown, Texas. Initial restoration was completed by professional and volunteer staff in a relatively short amount of time. Shakedown runs were conducted in December 1991. The Hill Country Flyer passenger train runs commenced from Cedar Park, Texas to Burnet Texas in July 1992. In 1999 #786 was again withdrawn from service after an old crack in the cylinder saddle was rediscovered. The damage was repaired long ago by the Southern Pacific long ago but ASTA thought the Cylinders should be replaced. Little did I know that, in 1995, when this video material was shot, four short years later there would be no more steam for the Austin Steam Train Association. To this day (2019) #786 remains disassembled at Cedar Park. ASTA continues to solicit donations to "repair" and "reassemble" #786 with little visible progress. Popular steam preservation community thoughts are, however, that the Texas & Pacific #610 will run at Palestine, Texas before #786 ever again turns a wheel on its own. This video, recorded in February 1995, are some of the sights and sounds of #786 pulling its train from Cedar Park to Burnet, Texas. It culminates with a cab ride, footplate to UK Commonwealth fans, leaving from Burnet. There is a 4000ft backing move from the Burnet Depot to the Wye to turn the train for its return to Cedar Park.

1950s ALLIS-CHALMERS CRAWLER TRACTORS PROMOTIONAL FILM 43814
 
18:06
Support Our Channel : https://www.patreon.com/PeriscopeFilm Presented by Allis-Chalmers (a US manufacturer of machinery), “Crawler Tractors in Action” takes its viewers on a detailed visual tour of earth-moving machines. The mid-1950s film kicks off with a look at horse-drawn scrapers and turn-of-the-century tractors, which helped kicked off a new era in road and building construction, as well as logging and mining operations. Flash forward to modern day and the viewer sees the current version of a crawler tractor at mark 02:00, which range from six tons to 21 tons. (A crawler tractor a continuous band of treads or track plates is driven by two or more wheels.) Starting at mark 02:30, the viewer sees the roll crawler tractors played in the construction of Illinois Tollway System in the 1950s and the construction of the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado, as we see Secretary of the Air Force Donald Quarles at mark 05:22. The film also shows crawler tractors in action clearing debris from a Kansas City slum, working on conservation project the Ute Indian Reservation in Colorado, and at mark 07:18 constructing the St. Lawrence Seaway. As the film progresses, we see them at work clearing timber from forests, working in rail yards, and laying pipeline in the Pacific Northwest. Showing crawler tractors are suited for any environment, the viewer is shown a snowy field in Colorado at mark 12:20 as the machine clears snow from an irrigation ditch, and later moves trash along in a landfill. “These ingenious crawler tractors, basic to the earth-moving and construction ambitions of man have contributed to the realization of our dreams,” says the narrator in conclusion. Allis-Chalmers was a U.S. manufacturer of machinery for various industries. Its business lines included agricultural equipment, construction equipment, power generation and power transmission equipment, and machinery for use in industrial settings such as factories, flour mills, sawmills, textile mills, steel mills, refineries, mines, and ore mills. The first Allis-Chalmers Company was formed in 1901 as an amalgamation of the Edward P. Allis Company (steam engines and mill equipment), Fraser & Chalmers (mining and ore milling equipment), the Gates Iron Works (rock and cement milling equipment), and the industrial business line of the Dickson Manufacturing Company (engines and compressors). It was reorganized in 1912 as the Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Company. During the next 70 years its industrial machinery filled countless mills, mines, and factories around the world, and its brand gained fame among consumers mostly from its farm equipment business's orange tractors and silver combine harvesters. In the 1980s and 1990s a series of divestitures transformed the firm and eventually dissolved it. Its successors today are Allis-Chalmers Energy and AGCO.

1880 Train Black Hills Central Railroad  from Hill City to Keystone South Dakota 7/17/17
 
06:30
Today we chased the 1880 train on on old Hill City Road in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The locomotive leading this train has an interesting history. This is a 2-6-6-2T articulated Mallet that was built by The Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1928 for the Weyerhaeuser Timber Company of Vail, WA. Its next stop was The Rayonier Lumber Company where it received a tender from Rayonier #101 and was retired in 1968. This engine was later displayed at the Wasatch Mountain Railway in Heber City, UT, and then sold to the Nevada State Railway Museum. The #110 was sold to The BHC in 1999 and was trucked from Nevada to South Dakota on four semi-trailers. Restoration on this engine was completed in the spring of 2001. It is the only 2-6-6-2T Mallet in service in the world. The first steam engine in the Black Hills was brought across the prairie by bull team to the Homestake Mining Company at Lead in 1879. In 1881, the Home-stake Company created the first narrow-gauge railroad in the Black Hills to haul its cargo and the public from Lead to several mining camps. In 1885, the first standard-gauge railroad reached Buffalo Gap, Dakota Territory, and was extended on into Rapid City the next year. The standard-gauge Burlington branch that came to host the 1880 Train's operations was built in several portions between Hill City and Keystone during the central Black Hills mining boom in the 1890s and the first month of 1900. The Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad (hereafter referred to as the Burlington for simplicity), pushed its line into the southwestern corner of the newly created state of South Dakota in November of 1889. In the spring of 1890, construction of this began at Edgemont as the first phase of the "High Line." In the summer of 1927, President Calvin Coolidge dedicated a granite mountain three miles southwest of Keystone as America's Shrine of Democracy, the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. In 1948, another monumental project was begun near a future route of the 1880 Train. South of Hill City, a granite mountain was chosen to memorialize the Lakota Indian warrior Crazy Horse. A young sculptor named Korzak Ziolkowski and several Lakota elders proclaimed that the mountain carving would "let others know that the Indian peoples had great leaders, too." Railroads in Lead City, 1900 During the late 1940s, diesel engines became more common than steam. After years of declining use, William B. Heckman (a public relations man with railroad experience) decided to start a railroad where steam actually operated and was not just relegated to static display. He and Robert Freer, a sales engineer of diesel locomotives in the Electro-Motive Division of General Motors, organized a group who believed "there should be in operation at least one working steam railroad, for boys of all ages who share America's fondness for the rapidly vanishing steam locomotive." On the morning of August 18, 1957, the first official train operated on the Black Hills Central Railroad. Veteran Burlington engineer Earl Coupens piloted the Klondike Casey and its two open-air coaches away from the Burlington's vintage1890 Hill City depot, up the four-percent grade of Tin Mill Hill and on to Oblivion. The route was nicknamed "the 1880 Train," as it was likened by Heckman to riding a train in the 1880s. While not quite historically accurate (Heckman was never a rigorous advocate of historic accuracy), the dating of the operation stuck, and if nothing else, captured an illusion of the railroad history. Robert and JoAnna Warder bought the Black Hills Central Railroad in 1990. As a result, the railroad experienced a rebirth. The existing operational locomotives (#7 and #104) were restored to prime condition, as were a number of the pieces of rolling stock. A new stall and machine shop were added to the Hill City Engine House for maintenance and restoration of locomotives, passenger cars and other rolling stock on a year-long basis. Railroad facilities were cleaned up and upgraded. In 2001, the link between Hill City and Keystone was restored, and trains were able to travel the steep grade in between the two depots, providing a vintage steam experience for thousands of tourists who visit the Black Hills on an annual basis. Fifty years after its inception, the Black Hills Central Railroad is still providing what Heckman envisioned–a place where new generations experience a steam locomotive and a way to commemorate the vital role that railroads played in the development of this country.

The Smith Mine Disaster of 1943 – near Red Lodge, Montana MT
 
03:30
The Smith Mine Disaster of 1943 – near Red Lodge, Montana MT. From the Billings, MT. Gazette, Feb 26, 2013: Saturday paid time-and-a-half at the Montana Coal and Iron Co.’s Smith Mine between Bearcreek and Washoe. Miners who had just emerged from the Great Depression of the 1930s eagerly worked the overtime weekend shift. They had the added incentive of doing their part to keep the World War II war machine running. Although many were immigrants, they were a patriotic lot, according to Matt Stump, a senior in history at Montana State University Billings. Most had the cost of war bonds deducted from their wages, he said. As 1942 drew to a close, Frank Mourich, a native of Austria, had increased his purchase of war bonds to $75 of his $132 biweekly paycheck, Stump found while researching his senior thesis. Daylight was about an hour old when Mourich and 76 other coal miners entered the mouth of the Smith Mine on Feb. 27, 1943. On that bright winter morning, they descended about 7,000 feet into the No. 3 vein and went to work. No one knows whether any of these men intent on their work noticed an unusual buildup of methane gas or coal dust, and there are only theories about what ignited an explosion so powerful that it blew a 20-ton locomotive off its tracks. Management got its first notification of the disaster below from hoisting engineer Alex Hawthorne, 55, who telephoned the surface and said: “There’s something wrong down here. I’m getting out.” All three survivors, who were described in the newspaper as “very sick,” were rushed to a hospital in Red Lodge, five miles away. Also hospitalized early that day were eight volunteers who were searching for survivors. Above ground, miners’ families kept a calm, hopeful watch, The Gazette reported. Meanwhile, the Red Cross, already in a high state of preparedness because of the war, quickly established a canteen to feed the crowd gathering at the mine. Within an hour of the first call for help, the organization had set up a 50-bed emergency hospital in Red Lodge, with the assistance of local high school students. On Sunday, Feb. 28, experienced miners told reporters that they believed that there was just a “thousand to one chance” trapped miners were still alive. The Butte specialists, who were equipped with oxygen masks, could stay underground as long as six hours at a time, but they were unfamiliar with the mine. Regular mine employees with only filter masks could not go as deep into the tunnel. Desperate to save family members and friends, local miners stayed down as long as they could. The rescue effort was grim. “When exhausted rescuers come out of the mine, most of them are dazed and groggy from the effects of the gas for hours afterward," The Gazette reported. "They are taken to the Red Lodge emergency hospital and put to bed. Drugs are administered to quiet their nerves, but many grow hysterical.” Six bodies had been recovered by Sunday. But miners’ wives kept the faith. “Calm and steadfast, unalterable in belief that their men will come out all right, they waited side by side on benches in the improvised canteen set up in the machine shop,” Gazette reporter Kathryn Wright wrote. “Many have been there since the disaster to meet the boys ‘when they come out.’ ” Robert Wakenshaw’s wife, awaiting word of her husband and her father-in-law, held her head high and her shoulders erect as she told Wright: “I know they’re coming out. I have all the confidence in the world.” Seventeen-year-old Martha Barovich knew her widowed father, Sam, would emerge safely. In agonizing slowness over the next week, the number of bodies began to mount. The last — that of mine foreman Elmer Price, 53 — came out on March 7. He left a wife and five children. The final casualty of the disaster, Matt Woodward, a rescue worker suffering the effects of his efforts, died April 9. His death brought the total to 75.

The Worlds Most Crooked Railroad - The Uintah Railway
 
14:06
Ghost tracking the amazing Uintah Railway, From Mack Colorado over Baxter Pass. We are back riding the California Zephyr to Grand Junction, with a side trip in search of the elusive yet amazing Uintah Railway, over the Book Cliffs in search of spikes and other rusty metal as we explore the abandoned grade. Also a quick trip to Cross Orchards which is home to a great collection of old Uintah rolling stock. ******************************************************************** From Wikipedia: The railway company was founded in 1903 as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Gilson Asphaltum Company. Construction began at a connection with the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad at what became known as Mack, Colorado. Twenty-eight miles of track was laid following West Salt Wash Creek upstream to the company town of Atchee, Colorado, named after a chief of the Ute people. Atchee served as a division point with maintenance shops for railway equipment. From Atchee, six miles of 7.5 percent grade were required to climb the Book Cliffs to Baxter Pass at an elevation of 8,437 feet (2,572 m). From the summit of Baxter Pass, there were seven miles of 5 percent downhill grade to Wendella, Colorado, followed by twelve miles of 3 percent or shallower grades down Evacuation Creek to the Black Dragon Mine just west of the Utah border. The Black Dragon Vein of Gilsonite was exposed across the ground surface for a distance of 4 miles (6.4 km), and averaged 6 feet (1.8 m) wide for half of that distance. Trains began hauling Gilsonite from the Black Dragon Mine in October, 1904. Shay locomotives pulled freight trains over Baxter Pass between the Dragon Mine and Atchee, and 2-8-0 engines pulled the freight trains between Atchee and Mack. ***************************************************************** Ten miles of track were laid in 1911 on a one percent grade down Evacuation Creek from Dragon, Utah, to the Rainbow Mine near Watson, Utah. A new 2-8-2 locomotive was built to pull freight trains between Watson and Wendella. The new locomotive was more efficient than Shay locomotives on that section of track, but it could not negotiate the steep grades and sharp curves over Baxter Pass between Wendella and Atchee. The railroad had operated passenger trains since 1905 consisting of a 0-6-2 tank locomotive pulling a single combine car between Mack and Dragon or Watson. This passenger train service was discontinued in 1921 For much of the 1920s the Uintah was headed by Lucian Sprague, a railroad executive who later became well known for orchestrating the dramatic turnaround of the bankrupt Minneapolis and St. Louis Railway.[6] In 1926 the railroad purchased an articulated locomotive, #50, which was specifically designed to handle the extreme curvature and steep grades of Baxter Pass. The idea was that this new locomotive would do away with the need to change engines at Atchee and Wendella. The single articulated locomotive could move as many cars as two Shay locomotives from Rainbow to Atchee, and made the trip in half the time. After some initial modifications, this engine proved to be such a success that in 1928 the railroad purchased a sister locomotive, #51. These were the only narrow gauge simple articulated locomotives sold for use in the United States. **************************************************************** The railroad lasted until 1939 when trucks took over hauling the Gilsonite. At that time, the rails were pulled up and the towns abandoned. Most of the railway's locomotives were scrapped immediately; the two famous articulateds were sold to the Sumpter Valley Railway in Oregon, and later went to Guatemala, where they were dismantled. Today all that remains of the Uintah are the cellar pits of some of the buildings, the shell of the machine shop in Atchee, a few pieces of rolling stock, and part of the company hotel in Mack ****************************************************************** Also see: eBay store Toy Man Television See more at http://oscaleguys.com/oscaleguys.html http://guyshobbyshop.com/ http://utahrails.net/utahrails/uintah.php https://museumofwesternco.com/cross-orchards/ -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "The Trains of Santa Cruz California" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nv0S8Sa18mY -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

"We Are Miner's (Losing Our Lives)" Music Tribute to Wallace, Idaho in the Silver Valley
 
01:52
Just my personal tribute to my mining friends and town folks here in Wallace Idaho and the Silver Valley. had the day off and had some old historical mining footage I wanted to mess with. I think this is an old Hank Williams Song re-done by the Cowboy Junkies on "The Trinity" album. This is NOT a very good quality video, as most of this is old mining film footage from the 1920's - 1950's with some of my video and historical photographs put in as well. So many men and women worked so hard to bring the metals out of the ground yet many lost their health and life for their trouble. Also, so many big important towns grew up to support those men and women, but now, with the passge of time and all the Government stupidity, these towns have become weak and frail with poor health and most have simply died. It is what it is, I like the songand I was bored. This video is just my tribute to so many hard working men and women, and to the towns that the lived in.No matter your position on mining we can all agree that our world and its technolgy would not exist without their hard and honest work. Thank you miners!!!

The most toxic place on earth - Agbogbloshie
 
52:00
For some, A. Bloshie is the worst place on earth. The streets are plastered with electronic scrap, chemical substances contaminate the soil, pungent smoke hangs in the air. But more than 6000 people live on Africa's most toxic rubbish tip, people whose fate begins on our doorstep. In Europe and the USA, the commodity Mafia smuggles containers full of used electrical appliances through customs and in doing so, earns a huge share in a billion-dollar business: trade with resources and illegal scrap. Broken computers, televisions or refrigerators arrive in Ghana's harbours on a daily basis. They are stripped bare in Agbogbloshie and burned. The copper that they peel out of burning cables is worth no more than a few cents for the children of Agbogbloshie. But one day, says the young lad in the football jersey, he will buy himself a motorbike from the money and then take part in races like the pros. The documentary, filmed in 4D, takes us on a journey to Agbogbloshie, a place in which good fortune is defined somewhat differently….
